Cute and Functional Rain Gear for Women

When the rainy season hits, it’s essential to have the right gear to keep you warm and dry. However, who says functional can’t be cute? With the right rain gear, you can stay comfortable and stylish no matter the weather. Let’s explore some of the cutest and most functional rain gear options out there for women.

The best brand for affordable rain gear

Let’s be honest, the rainy season is not exclusive to April. This is especially true for Florida natives that have to deal with the weather’s chaotic changes. It’s true, and you can read more about Florida’s chaotic climate changes by reviewing an article written by Ashley Roberts Tampa Police. You’re going to want to make sure you check the weather and pack appropriately for the climate, depending on what time of the year you choose to travel. More so, if you are someone who goes to theme parks like Disney, finding rain gear while it’s actively raining will be fairly costly.

Reasons to own a clear bubble umbrella from Totes. It's functional and allows you to view your surroundings with ease.

Totes is a great brand to turn to because they have a range of adorable and practical options.Take, for example, their Clear Bubble Umbrella, which is perfect for staying dry while still being able to see where you’re going. The bubble design provides extra protection from the rain. Not to mention, the clear material lets you see through to avoid obstacles. There are options to get it with some colorful trim to add a fun pop of color to any rainy day outfit.

If you’re looking for something a little more classic, Totes also offers a range of traditional umbrellas in cute patterns and colors. The Compact Manual Umbrella is a great option for those on the go, with a small size that makes it easy to stash in your bag. And with patterns like polka dots and stripes, you’re sure to find one that matches your personal style.

Fashionable rain jackets and boots

But rain gear isn’t just about umbrellas. Totes also offers a range of rain jackets and boots that are both cute and functional. The Women’s Packable Rain Jacket is a standout, with a lightweight design that makes it perfect for travel. And with options like pink and floral prints, you can stay stylish even on the gloomiest of days. Not to mention, if you are planning on going to Disney World or Universal Studios while it’s raining, you know how much a poncho in the park can be. Save yourself the money and just get a fashionable and reusable one for less from Totes. They even have one that looks like you are Disney Bounding as Minnie Mouse!

When it comes to rain boots, Totes has you covered there too. The Women’s Chelsea Rain Boot is a great choice. With them being ankle boots in classic colors, you can keep a classic outfit look without the regular clunky look of “normal” rain boots. And with a waterproof construction, you can rest assured that your feet will stay dry no matter how hard it’s raining outside.

Not just for functional for rain

Of course, when winter rolls around, you need a different set of gear to keep you warm and cozy. Totes has plenty of options for that too. Starting with their line of cute and functional winter boots. The Women’s Cynthia Winter Boot is a particular favorite. With a fur-lined collar that adds both warmth and style, it keeps a classic look to any cute winter outfit you have. And with a waterproof construction, you can wear these boots in even the slushiest of conditions.

Secondly, another fan favorite is the Eve Winter Boots. They have a shorter structure than the Cynthia Boot, and compliments the wearer in white instead of black. Not to mention, they would definitely be great for a Princess Leia Disney Bound.

Just because it’s raining or snowing outside doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style for functionality. With the cute and functional rain and winter gear from Totes, you can have the best of both worlds. Whether you’re looking for a cute umbrella, rain jacket, boots, or winter gear, Totes has something for your weathered days.

What to wear for a rainy day at Disney

What to Wear for a Rainy Day at Disney

Rainy days are only fun if you are properly prepared. Especially at a Disney park. If you aren’t dressed for stormy weather, a rainy day at Disney can be miserable. And for the amount that you spent on tickets to get in, a little water should not be ruining your day! That’s why it’s essential to know what to wear for a rainy day at Disney. For whatever Disney park you go to.

1. A clear, bubble umbrella

This is by far THE BEST decision you will ever make. At least when it comes to rainy days at Disney. I got my clear, bubble umbrella in-store from Marshall’s for $10, but the brand is Totes. You can also get it or one like it on Amazon.

The reason that this umbrella will be your best friend is that it’s see through. No shit, right? For how gorgeous the Disney parks are, you’ll want to be looking around. Having a solid colored umbrella won’t allow you that opportunity. Not to mention, you can more easily maneuver around people since you can see through it. Also for someone like me who wears glasses, this is perfect. I can put myself in the little bubble and as soon as I move into the indoor parts of the ride’s line, my glasses are clear of raindrops.

Gone are the days of having the wind pick up and your umbrella bending against the wind. Gone are the days of the rain moving sideways and circumventing your umbrella’s defenses. This bubble umbrella will keep you dry from the top of your head to your chest area. I was even complimented a few times on my technique for using it! Holding it so my head was touching the top of the inside of it was the most dry I have ever been in the rain. I created a perfect bubble cocoon of dryness.

2. A proper pair of boots

The reason this says “proper pair” instead of “rain boots” is because for a Disney park, rain boots may not be best option. Rain boots make the most amount of sense for a rainy day. But at least in my experience, rain boots aren’t comfortable. Especially for all the walking you will be doing for a day wandering around the Park.

So instead I suggest a pair of boots that will be able to be worn for more than just the rain. My personal pick are these platform boots. Again, I got them in-store at Marshall’s for $20, but they are available on Amazon. They’re fashionable, they work well with most outfits for rainy weather, and they did an amazing job keeping my feet dry and happy for a stormy Disney day. The platform sole also is great to keep you above the puddles. I even stepped in a pretty big puddle that I didn’t see and I thought “for sure this is going to be when my socks get wet”. But spoiler alert – they never did! This boot comes in so many different colors that there is something for everyone. I may even get myself another pair!

And once the rain starts pouring, there are trip and slip hazards. You need to do your best to avoid them with good boots! But if you don’t quite manage and you find yourself taking a tumble or getting into an accident, personal injury lawyers will be happy to help.

3. A mini Loungefly backpack or something similar

The biggest mistake made when figuring out what to wear on a rainy day is the wrong kind of bag. Anything that is a fabric should never be considered. Not only will your backpack be a soggy heap, but so will everything inside. I highly recommend getting yourself a mini Loungefly backpack or something similar. A PU leather backpack is a great alternative. It’s is faux leather, less expensive than a Loungefly, and can be used more frequently outside of Disney.

707 Street offers a wide range of these kinds of Loungefly backpacks. They also have a lot of exclusive Loungefly’s that you can’t get anywhere else! Use the coupon code THANKYOU23 to receive 10% off of 707 Street on orders $150+. I also recommend browsing Nordstrom Rack to browse a good range of PU backpacks.

4. A long rain jacket

Your handy, clear umbrella is going to do a great job, trust me. But you’ll still need some proper coverage. Disney has a good selection of fun rain jackets. However, they aren’t long enough to help keep your pants dry enough. Not only that, but a long jacket ensures that your booty stays dry when sitting down on a ride. Lots of rides are outdoors and probably getting wet in the process. Don’t get caught sitting in a puddle.

Again, I recommend browsing the selection on Nordstrom Rack. Not only is Nordstrom Rack great quality, but you also get a fantastic price. For the light blue rain jacket from the picture above, click here.

5. Layers, layers, layers

Layers are essential to keep warm. Unless of course you are figuring out what to wear to Walt Disney World in the summer during hurricane season. In which case, this section does not apply to you. A long sleeve under a classic Spirit Jersey will keep you warm AND in the Disney spirit. And for those extra cold winter days, a pair of leggings under your jeans will also help you out. This section doesn’t require too much additional thought. Your closet should currently suffice to layer up for a cold rainy day at Disney!
